I am a second grade teacher in central North Carolina. I have taught kindergarten in the past, but I truly love second grade! I am married to the love of my life, and we have two beautiful girls. I earned my bachelor's degree in education and sociology from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in 2003. After teaching a few years, I returned to school to receive my Master's Degree in Elementary Education in 2009. I love working with children because they love life and each new day is full of promises!
Sorry it's been awhile since I updated my blog. I'm still trying to figure out Teachers Pay Teachers, make new things for the classroom, and how to add pictures of my creations onto my website! Anyways, here is one of the most recent things I have created for my students to use. We are currently studying how life was like during colonial times, and we are beginning to compare it to how life is today. We have been working on this concept for a few days, and I created three graphic organizers to go along with our investigation. We took one day to complete each page, and we used a variety of texts, videos, and websites to learn the information needed to complete the colonial times organizer. Hope you find this helpful. If you use it, please leave a comment!
